I surprise myself with how lazy I can be. I walk up my driveway, see a newspaper lying on the side, and think, “Nah, I’ll get it another time…” A pair of winter gloves sit on the floor of my car. I could bring them inside… “Nah. Next time!” I surprise myself with how lazy I can be! That’s a problem, especially when it comes to God and his Word. How often am I too lazy to pray or read the Bible or go to church? “Nah. Another time!”
I’m thankful that Jesus doesn’t have that attitude with us. He could have thought of a million reasons to put off dying on the cross for our salvation. But he didn’t! He came. He died. He rose. He forgave! So when is the time to trust in Jesus? I love this verse, “But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called ‘Today,’ so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness” (Hebrews 3:13). Don’t let sin’s laziness keep you from Jesus’ grace and blessings. Today’s the day to hear God’s Word. Today! I hope you have a church to hear about Jesus in this Sunday. God will bless you!
